Oldschool Runescape is known for its long, endless grinds in several skills, especially when trying to get to 99. While some skills in OSRS can be trained to level 99 in less than a day, it should be noted that most skills that don’t take a long time to level 99 are typically costly to train..
In this guide, I'll outline the quickest skills to train to 99, along with the most effective ways to get there and a summary of the associated costs.
Fletching is a skill in Oldschool Runescape that can be trained to 99 faster than any other skill. It lets you make various kinds of ranged weapons and their ammo. Fletching can be profitable, but not if you're trying to reach 99 as quickly as possible.
Using feathers and dart tips, you can fletch darts as quickly as possible to reach 99 fletching. This method is also relaxing because it only requires two clicks to complete an inventory. Once you reach 95 fletching, you can begin fletching dragon darts, which can earn you about 1.3 million experience per hour.
You should do quests at the start to get to 30+ fletching, after that, below are the fastest methods to get to various levels, the experience rate you should expect, and the total cost of 99.
Getting to 99 using this method will take you roughly 8 hours and about 150M.
It is well known that prayer training is expensive, even for the slowest approach. It should come as no surprise that the fastest technique requires so much GP; in contrast to fletching, you can utilize the extremely quick approach starting at level 1.
Using Superior bones is the fastest way to train prayer, but this is the only bone that needs to be used at a specific prayer level—70 prayer is needed. The fastest way to train up to 70 prayer is to use Ourg bones, but these are incredibly expensive—they can cost up to five times as much as Daganoth bones—and they only provide 52.5 more experience than Dagannoth bones.
Training with Daganoth bones to 70 is a better option by far, after that, you should train with superior bones from 70 to 99 prayer.
If you have 75 construction, you simply need a hammer and a saw in your inventory to create a gilded altar in the altar space of the chapel of your player-owned house (POH). If you don't own a home, you are welcome to utilize other players’ houses in Rimmington and Yannile on W330.
Gilded altars are crucial if you want to reach 99 prayers as quickly as possible since they provide a 250% bonus, a 300% prayer experience when one incense burner is lit, and a 350% benefit when both are lit
Using the Superior Bones for training, you should be able to get 1.3 million experience every hour.
Alternatively, you can use the Chaos temple to train, it is certainly cheaper but slower and you’d need to be more careful because of Pkers.
Like other skills on this list, training construction all the way to level 99 would be pricey, but the skill has excellent experience rates.
This is a summary of the quickest route from construction level 1 to 99.

At level 33, building oak larders is the fastest way to get experience. You may build it in the kitchen larder area of your POH to gain 480 experience, and all you need to have in your inventory is a saw and a hammer.
